in reply to VIM 6.0 filetype plugin for Perl
As all other comments have stated, this is an excellent contribution, Ned. I am really pleased to have belatedly discovered your presence on PM.
I am interested in using the file you present but I do have a question on my mind: the Vim I use already has a $VIMRUNTIME/ftplugin/perl.vim file, and some of it is credited to you. It duplicates some but not all of the statements in your file. If you care to, could you discuss the differences in features or functionality achieved by using this script over what's now being distributed as part of Vim (for example, the latest version is canonically available at this url)?
